View Full Version : Replacement TDI engine

Hi all.

For those of you who have a Mk3 Golf TDI u may have the same problem as me!

The engine is noisy and unrefined when ticking over and u can always hear it particularly on a motorway. I know that was one of the downsides to the first TDIs and I am seriously thinking of fitting a newer Mk4 Golf TDI engine to my Mk3 Golf, possibly the 115 or 130bhp versions and possibly 5 or 6 years old because they are a lot quieter than they used to be. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to do and if so what I would need to do and to have changed to accomodate it?

Or would I be cheaper and find it less hassle just to buy a Mk4 Golf with one of these engines instead?
